[krd-010] Khavn - Mondomanila




This is the 13-song soundtrack to the independent film "MONDOMANILA Or: How I Fixed My Hair After A Rather Long Journey," featuring songs composed, performed and produced by the director Khavn De La Cruz with the help of electronica producer Malek Lopez and a handful of guest artists and co-writers (Ogo X, Norman Wilwayco, Lourd De Veyra, Pennie Azarcon Dela Cruz).

The album opener explains the schizophrenia of the entire project (and exposes the inconsistency of Manila as a city, in general) by juxtaposing tranquil bossanova with punk screamo. The remaining 28 minutes brings you on a documentary trip through the ugly underbelly of urban life by pitting lovelorn lyrics against stream-of-consciousness ramblings, slice-of-life vignettes of ugly characters against idyllic visions of a dream city, and syrupy love versus inexplicable anger. This is Khavn at his best, becoming a voice for the underdogs -- the armless, legless, eyeless, toothless masses of Manila.
